Experience Grand Rapids is growing - just like the city we're promoting. As the organization charged with marketing Grand Rapids to meeting planners and visitors, we're looking for people who share our enthusiasm and excitement for this major-cool metropolis. We offer great working conditions, excellent salary and benefits, and the unequaled perk of living in a city that does more to support creativity than just about any city, anywhere.

Experience Grand Rapids is the destination marketing organization for one of the most dynamic metropolitan areas in the country. Grand Rapids is the home of the internationally acclaimed ArtPrize, and recipient of numerous awards, including Michigan’s Best Travel Destination for 2020, Michigan’s Best Food City, Beer City USA, America’s Best River Town, and Top US Travel Destination. Experience Grand Rapids operates on an annual budget of approximately $11.5M. With 11,000 hotel rooms in the region, a world class convention center and arena, and a dynamic restaurant and entertainment scene, Grand Rapids is already an attractive meeting and convention location. The destination is proposing a new 500 room hotel and urban Amphitheatre, as well as restoring the Grand River to its natural whitewater condition – this will elevate Grand Rapids as the premier location for meetings, conventions, and events.
Experience Grand Rapids is proud to be recognized as the HelmsBriscoe Destination Partner of the Year in 2018. An organization of this caliber, supporting this kind of convention and tourism growth requires a dynamic Vice President, Sales & Services to spread the word about the great venues that Grand Rapids has to offer.
We offer great working conditions, excellent salary and benefits, and opportunity for significant incentive bonus. Medical, dental, and vision insurance, 401-K, and paid time off are part of the package for full-time employees.
